St Helens Chamber Golf Day provides an excellent opportunity to network with other businesses or entertain your own clients at a premier North West venue. The day will start with breakfast and an optional 9 hole practice. After lunch the main tournament will commence.

A team of 38 climbers who took part in the Spectrum Kilimanjaro Challenge in 2015  not only  reached Uhuru Peak the summit of the 5895m (19341ft) Mount Kilimanjaro in 6 days instead of the more usual 9 days, but also played the World’s Highest game of rugby to raise funds for, and awareness of the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF).

Over 200 family, friends and Steve Prescott Foundation supporters joined in the £Million celebrations at the Yorkshire Three Peaks event at the weekend. 150 walkers tackled the gruelling 24 mile trek over Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside raising funds and awareness of the SPF.

The sun was shining as the intrepid walkers set off at 0700 from Horton-in Ribblesdale supported by Kuta Outdoors. Phil Lee and his team provided phenomenal support and expertise throughout the day and the SPF thank them so much for their fantastic work in keeping everyone safe and on track. We highly recommend their services to anyone considering completing walking challenges not only in Yorkshire but right across the UK.

The highlight was not only Passing £Million Pound donations to charities with such a great challenge, but Steve and Linzi’s sons Taylor age 14 and  Koby age 9 completing the challenge with Linzi. It really shows how passionate they all are at continuing Steve's legacy and following in the great mans footsteps.

The Steve Prescott Foundation & Woolyback Productions are elated to announce that the recent Bartons Pickles Crown Celebrity Challenge raised a phenomenal £3000.

Martin Blondel General Manager of the SPF said "When the concept of the Crown Green Challenge was first discussed, Woolyback Productions and the SPF first priority was to put on a Family Funday for allthe community. We are delighted to say that this was a successful day on all counts and we were blown away with the amount of people who turned up. To raise £3000 was above our expectations!"

Martin Blondel General Manager of the SPF said "We are once again grateful to the Chamber for choosing the SPF as one of it's chosen charities alongside our friends from Willowbrook Hospice! This donation means so much to associated with the SPF and the three charities we support. It also states a recognition that leading people in our town are committed to keep Steve's name and legacy at the forefront of people's minds to help those less fortunate and overcome adversity!"

This involved walking 40 miles over the North Yorkshire Moors in less than 24 hours.  Here's Jill's account of the experience:-

The minibus set off from Hessle to Osmotherley (start point) at 1.30am in the morning and we reached there at 3.30am. We set off walking in first light at 4am and finished the walk 18 hours and 14 minutes later (including breaks and stops at checkpoints) at 10:14pm so we went nearly 24 hours without sleep by the time we all got home.  Only one person dropped out due to injury so 8 out of the 9 of us completed the walk.  Most of us were struggling the next day with aches and stiffness ( personally stairs and me were not friends for a couple of days!)  and one said 'it felt like he'd been beaten with a large stick!'

Six amateur rugby league clubs from across the UK are celebrating after being drawn as winners of the Tecmark Six of the Best prize draw.

Hull FC fan Ian Lancaster celebrated his 50th birthday last weekend and instead of presents, he asked all of his guests to make a donation to the Steve Prescott Foundation. Ian’s family and friends donated a fantastic £380 for the SPF.

Ian says ‘I’ve been a rugby league supporter for a long time. My dad was always asking me to go to Hull FC games when I was a kid. One Sunday afternoon, at about quarter to three I asked if we were going to go to the game. We ran from our house to the Boulevard to see Hull play Bramley. The game was abandoned shortly after half time as Hull ran out of clean shirts. This was the only game I ever got to see with my Dad. He died of stomach cancer the following year. I was hooked on the game though and continued to watch, play, manage and referee it.

My name is Rob Poole, I am taking part in the IWA White Collar Boxing event on Friday 31st July at Envi, Liverpool city centre. I will be tasked to 3 rounds of boxing with a similar matched opponent (matched by weight and ability).

I was inspired by the SPF at a recent event my partner and I attended at the Cottage Warrington, since then I have been in contact with Ade who has given me some great tips on how to set up my just giving page.

Fancy a summers day at the races in great company for a fantastic cause?

Lee Briers, Warrington Wolves legend and ambassador of the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) is hosting a race day in luxury surroundings very kindly sponsored by Maxilead Metals at Haydock Park Race Course, WA12 0HQ on Thursday 6th August in aid of the Spectrum Kilimanjaro Challenge.

It was all fun at Shoots Delph Farm at Mossbank, St Helens on Sunday. As part of farming’s national Open Farm Sunday visitors were welcomed to see the farm at first hand. Central to the farm is Forster Organic Meats farm shop selling organic beef and lamb. They also supply several local farmers markets with their produce. The fifth generation farming family business was established in 1891.

The day was blessed by sunny weather and visitors were able to enjoy a tractor ride round the farm, see sheep, pigs and cattle at close hand and enjoy refreshments including the fantastic beef burgers and sausages on the barbeque. There was a special kids play barn with an egg stall, a mini tractor run and face painting. There was also a butcher demonstration how to carve a half lamb carcass.

The Steve Prescott Foundation are elated to announce the first ever St Helens Triathlon will take place on September 13th . It is fair to say that this has been the hardest logistical challenge that the foundation has undertaken in its 8 year history.

Martin Blondel, General Manager of the SPF said “Steve and I have been working on the concept of a triathlon taking place in St Helens for over three year’s. Leading people within St Helens said it would not happen. It was Steve’s last wish. We could have easily opted for an indoor swim but Steve wanted in true SPF style for the triathlon to be a full test and this certainly is!”
